The battle is joined. Within 24 hours John McCain told more lies about Obama, claiming he was for socialism. Colin Powell wielded the big bat for Barack with a powerful endorsement of Obama's presidential temperament and character and an equally powerful condemnation of McCain's lowball negativity. Three million Obama donors raised an astounding $150 million in one month for the big truth to defeat the big lie.

Powell's endorsement of Barack and strong criticism of the nature of McCain's campaign are profound events. Powell validates Obama as truly presidential, as a great patriot and potential president who is cool in a crisis, calm in a storm, and ready to lead. Powell is a hugely credible messenger, advocate, validator and believer in a Barack Obama presidency. 

Powell's endorsement is powerful, transforming and profound.

Meanwhile, McCain continues to lie. The latest lies are that Obama represents socialism and that Obama's middle-class tax cut is welfare. Welfare for hardworking Americans in an economic crisis? McCain's mud knows no limits. Powell's credibility reaches across the spectrum. And now the John and Jane Does are giving the small donations to power the big truth against the big lies.

It is historic, astounding, and one of the great moments in American democracy. There are now more than 3 million Obama donors, most of them small, with an average donation of less than $100. They buy television time to broadcast the truth, support programs to get out the vote, and stand for a higher purpose in American politics than McCain's lies will ever permit in the Bush-like campaign he uses to lower our standards of democracy and public discourse.

McCain's lies; Powell's endorsement; the rising tide of small Obama donors — all are part of the great continuum of 2008. Change is coming and the truth shall set us free.
